We acknowledge and promote these wider aspects of adult safeguarding and always promote an individual’s ‘wellbeing’.  We ensure a person’s wellbeing is at the centre of our delivery services and understand our general duty of care where wellbeing relates; for example, by supporting:

  • Physical and mental health and emotional wellbeing of the individual
  • Personal dignity (including the treatment of the individual with respect)
  • Protection from abuse or neglect
  • Professional and personal relationships including family
  • Social and economic wellbeing
  • The individual’s contribution to society
  • Participation in education, training and work

  • Responding to the ideological challenge of terrorism
  • Prevent people from being drawn into terrorism
  • Work with sectors and institutions where there are risks of radicalisation

Threat Levels

Threat levels are designed to give a broad indication of the likelihood of a terrorist attack.
